“Strangely enough we have discussed this recently,” L answered with a smile, “Mostly because his mother keeps reminding us that she isn’t getting any younger. I personally think I’m never going to be ready for that kind of thing, Light says otherwise and has been thinking about it as well. Especially since we’ve been thinking of actually getting married.
We don’t have anything against having children, we simply never saw ourselves as parents; we were both far to self-cenetered for parenthood but as time passes we have noted the changes in both of us in that regard. We have the ability to show the world to a child, and we both think we would enjoy seeing things that have become mundane differently through a child’s eyes.
As far as what sex we’d pick; I think probably a male would be best. At least at first, the Yagami’s want to continue their line and that could only be done with a boy. I don’t have very much experience with girls, Light of course has having a younger sister so that might be something to explore
We have also discussed the idea of having a surrogate; using Light’s sperm of course and that would definitely keep the Yagami line going, and insure the child has his good looks as well. If we go with that then we can’t choose the sex, which is normal. If we decided to go that route, and we decided to have a second child, then that child would be adopted and we would look for whatever sex we didn’t have the first time.
As far as how we would raise a child or children as I have not had a traditional upbringing I would leave the basics up to Light who has. At least until I’ve had a chance to study child rearing myself in detail. In a way I am looking forward to this idea; the closest I’ve come to something like this is with the boys, and they are all fine young men, working on their own brilliantly and I’d like to think I had a hand in how they turned out.
Light is more animated about this than I am; as he is used to the normal family dynamic and is looking forward to having that himself. I admit it is an adventure I am quite interested in seeing happen.”
Thank you for your question,
